Two storied franchises are clashing for the 2018 World Series title.
Though this is the first meeting between the Los Angeles Dodgers and Boston Red Sox in the Fall Classic, it isn’t the first time the two franchises have gone head to head for the title of baseball’s world champion. The Boston Red Sox defeated the Brooklyn Robins in the 1916 World Series. The Robins would later become the Brooklyn Dodgers and, ultimately, the Los Angeles Dodgers.
According to those data, the Red Sox are third, having been crowned World Series champions eight times. They trail the New York Yankees, with an astounding 27 titles, and the St. Louis Cardinals, with 11. The Dodgers are tied with four other teams for fourth-most wins, having earned the title five times.
Game 1 has already provided excitement, as a pinch-hit, three-run homer in the seventh inning broke the game open for the Red Sox, who won 8-4 and hold a 1-0 series lead.
